is putting the united states at greater risk. for all of the obama administration's foreign policy successes, from ending the war in iraq to killing osama bin laden, the most enduring policy legacy of the past four years may well turn out to be an approach to counterterrorism that american officials call the yemen model. a mixture of drone strikes and special forces raids targeting al qaeda leaders. mr. brennan is the president's chief counterterrorism advisor and architect of this model. in a recent speech he claimed there was, quote, little evidence that these actions are generating widespread anti-american sentiment or recruits for aqap, unquote, referring to al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. perhaps the initial donea bye instead of aqap, this is me talking, not the article, instead of the initials, acronyms that the administration s, government likes to do, maybe it ought to be mbch, the muslim brotherhood on capitol hill. where al lackey that this administration killed with a drone strike led prayers. back to the article, mr. brennan's assertion was either shockingly naive or deliberat
